Feel free to use any of my photographs on your Find A Grave pages or memorials or for your personal albums so long as it is according to Find A Grave policy and copyright law and you give me appropriate credit. If my photos are on a memorial you manage and you want to add your own, feel free to delete mine. Also, consider sponsoring those memorials of close friends and family. After all, it is only $5.00 and you can add unlimited photos to that memorial for life and it will never be cluttered with advertisements again. What A Deal!
If you find that I manage the memorial of one of your first generation relatives, I will be glad to transfer it to you provided your request is according to Find A Grave policy and the memorial is not one of my first generation relatives according to Find A Grave policy.
I am an active auctioneer licensed in both KY & IN. I am also a retired mental health and substance abuse therapist with more than 20 years of experience in the fields of homelessness, substance abuse, general mental health, and juvenile delinquency. I also write with several publications and citations primarily in the field of Appalachian Studies and Culturally Appropriate Human Services in Appalachia. My blog can be found as listed below or by Google Search of the phrase: My Appalachian Life. I grew up in Knott County Kentucky within sight of three cemeteries: the Hicks Family Cemetery, the Turner Cemetery, and the UMWA Union Cemetery. I do some genealogical research and love to visit cemeteries since they can give me a great deal of information about a locality in a very short time. I also used to travel in the Deep South and love to visit Civil War Era cemeteries in TN, AL, GA, & FL. I used to have a habit of eating a lunch of boiled peanuts, pickled pigs feet, and a 20 ounce Coke while walking through an old Southern Cemetery. I highly recommend it as a form of relaxation.
